We are excited to introduce the next film in EXHIBTION ON SCREEN Series 2, Vincent van Gogh - a new way of seeing in cinemas from 14th April 2015! A unique opportunity to behold a remarkable collection of great works from the Van Gogh Museum.
Made in close collaboration with curators and researchers at the Van Gogh Museum, this film marks not only a major re-presentation of the gallery’s collection but also the 125th anniversary of Van Gogh’s death.
The Van Gogh Museum houses the largest collection of Vincent’s artistic output in the world and features great works such as The Potato Eaters, Sunflowers, Irises, The Bedroom and many of his self-portraits. This film not only provides viewers with the moving and inspiring experience of seeing Vincent’s iconic masterpieces on the screen, in close up, but also examines new insights and interpretation from specially invited guests including curators, historians and artists.
Vincent’s illuminating letters to his family and friends are brought to life by dramatisation, providing a major new biography. We track Van Gogh’s life from his beginnings in the Netherlands and England to his development as an impassioned artist in France. New research and recent discoveries address the many myths surrounding Vincent’s troubled life.
This film offers privileged access behind the scenes at the Van Gogh Museum as it represents its extensive collection in a new way, and with new understanding. We look intensely at the life of a man who reminds us the Art is long and life is short.
